Weekly theme 10th September 2018 - Shapes

(Helen Hooker) #1

Hello everyone! Well, last week’s repetition theme brought the entries flooding in - it’s great to see more people taking part. I’ll announce our winners at the end of this post, but in the meantime let’s set a new theme for the coming week.

I must also apologise for being so late posting the theme - the glitch in the forum meant I couldn’t post a new topic, even after everyone else could get back in! Given that we’re now four days into the working week I suggest we let this theme run a bit longer to give you all time to find your entries. Full info in the ‘how to participate’ section below.

This week’s theme is Shapes

This new theme gives you a decision to make. Thank you to @Unicornlover for suggesting the idea. The challenge is for you to pick a shape and then find a photo which utilises it. Here are a few examples I’ve found to show what I’m suggesting.

You can use anything to make the shapes. For instance, Taylor Kiser made a picture of squares here, using some very yummy looking white chocolate brownies!

In contrast, David Hertle has found some beautiful circles in the Texas Capitol building.

And to show that I’m willing to do this myself, here’s a shot I took on a walk where I set myself the task of photographing triangles. In the end I found them at the railway crossing in our village - it just goes to show you can find a photo anywhere!

So there are some ideas to get you thinking - now it’s your turn to go out and find a shape to photograph!

A local art collective asked each of its members to build a box out of specific dimensions given to them, and bring it to the grounds of City Hall. Members came from all over. With pre arranged numbers on each box, ladders and scaffolding- this is the final structure

For this week’s theme I decided to go with the Rectangle shape. The paintings in the pic are done by my mom ( except from the framed one) . She paints as a hobby and she is absolutely brilliant at it. Hope you guys like it :slight_smile:

I think this is one the great shapes in nature.

As usual, I’m late sharing my picture, but here are some circles I found in the harbour at Lyme Regis a couple of days ago.
